Here is the photo of one the participating teams. I think it was from Croatia and you could also see that how smartly they were dressed.
I thing Czech Republic and Croatia did very well.
The participating girls were as little as around 6 years old but they had plenty of courage and confidence.
I was so lucky during my visit to Bratislava as I managed to witness two big events.
There was competition of Mazoretky in the city. I have never seen this game in London but it was purely girly game.
There were school girls of seven or eight different countries participating in this competitions.
Cunovo Water Sport Area
This is the special artificial areal created in Cunovo for the training of our sportsmen :) such as Martikan, brothers Horschorners etc who gain medails of Championship and of course Olympic ones in kayaking and similar disciplines. Martikan was the first Slovak who gain the Gold Olympic medal by the way. However, you can go there and try this sport by yourself. It is also opened to the public.
City Bike Tour
There is a bike tour you can take which gives you the history of Bratislava and brings you to some places you wouldn't see otherwise. Look at www.nicksbiketours.com or ask the front desk at your hotel for some more info.
Equipment: No equipment necessary. The bike and a helmet is provided.
Around Bratislava, you can forge ahead on the bike trail along the Danube that will take you out to (and beyond) beautiful Devín Castle or across the river and into Austria. Another local favourite is the bike path south of town to the swimming lakes in Èuòovo and Rusovce. The path starts on the Petržalka side of the Danube river and heads south for some 16 km past the last Bratislava bridge, Prístavný most. Further biking opportunuties exist in forest parks and in the Small Carpathian mountain range where the adventurous biker can ride for hours on the endless dirt trails.
Equipment: Bring your own bike. I tried to find some bike rental shop in Bratislava, but without result. If you will find some, let me know.
Rafting in Cunovo
Have fun on the artificial canal in Bratislava. Rafting team in Cunovo offers trips for min. 4 persons. The cost for one hour and half is Sk 600,-/person. The flow of the water is WW II - WW III.
Please call to reserve at least 1 week before.
Equipment: Everything you will need will be given to you by rafting staff.
Whilst we were in Bratislava the final of the tennis Davis cup was being held with
Slovakia playing host to Croatia.
The Davis cup itself was on display in the entrance way to the Archbishops palace.
Did not realise it was quite so big.
Cycles or In-line Skates
If you're in Bratislava for a longer period of time in the warmer months and are more on the sporty side, I suggest hiring a bicycle or in-line skates and heading out to the so called Hradza. It's a track for bicycles and skates starting under the Pristavny most bridge and it takes you by the river to the outskirts of Bratislava. If it's warm enough bring a swim suit as there are lakes to swim in nearby. I recommend buying a cycling map because there are many cycling routes like this around Bratislava, you can even cycle to nearby Austria. And take care on Hradza during the weekends. It gets quite crowded.
Centrally located fitness center
If you miss you spinning or tae-bo lessons or just fancy a work-out during your holiday the Golem fitness club is an easily-accessible and big fitness centre in one of Bratislava's shopping centers - Aupark. For spinning, a reservation is a must, other lessons are on a come and train basis.
Equipment: Fitness outfit.
